Agatha Christie is known throughout the world as the Queen of Crime. Her books have sold over a billion copies in English with another billion in over 70 foreign languages. She is the most widely published author of all time and in any language, outsold only by the Bible and Shakespeare. She is the author of 80 crime novels and short story collections, 20 plays, and six novels written under the name of Mary Westmacott.
'As a teacher using the Amazing People ELT Readers in an
Extensive Reading Project, I'm as happy as my students are:
motivating topics/real people, interesting facts and a great
alternative to Graded Reader fiction. Having said that, the same
class is also reading books from the Agatha Christie series, and
enjoying them very much. Their Reading Diaries are full of
questions, speculation about who-dunnit and comments about
"unputdownability". The buzz in the classroom when we're swopping
books is tangible.'
